The skinnier brother of the legendary DPS Wailer 112RP2, the Wailer 99 is probably a better choice for many skiers looking for that elusive one-ski-quiver. At 99mm underfoot, the Wailer 99 outshines the wider Wailer 112 on groomed snow, where its edge-to-edge quickness and lightning-fast turn initiation is hard to match. That nimble feel is especially welcome in bumps and tight trees. In the Hybrid T2 construction, a wood core reinforced with metal laminates provides a sturdy backbone for carving firm surfaces and powering through variable snow, while also smoothing out vibrations at high speeds. Meanwhile, DPS's Paddle Tech geometry dials in the rocker profile and tapered sidecut to deliver a precise but playful on-snow feel. Big mountain skiers know the value of a versatile 100mm-wide ski, and the Wailer 99 might be the best that category has to offer.
The Hybrid T2 construction adds metal reinforcement to DPS's innovative designs, offering serious skiers an exceptionally stable, classic ride. Hybrid T2 skis are a bit heavier than the other DPS constructions, adding some weight to the Hybrid/Foundation series in exchange for more stability, dampness, and power. As with all DPS skis, it features best-in-class World Cup race bases, precision engineering, and formidable durability.
